Town garden, Alton, Hampshire
This garden is situated on the outskirts of a town with views to the countryside beyond the boundaries. My clients requested a relaxed, fairly traditional style of garden with plenty of spaces for pretty, cottage garden style planting. A large expanse of concrete paving was replaced with a mix of sandstone paving, gravel and brickwork, with flower beds used to divide and soften the hard landscaping. The large lawn was re-shaped, with planting at the far end chosen to merge the garden with the wider landscape beyond. A small kitchen garden was included to provide a space for my clients to grow herbs and vegetables. Spaces for seating were located to make the most of the sun at different times of the day.
